Hi all,
As Mark said, we will be conducting a session titled “Persistent
Identifiers: Use Cases and PID Types” at the ESIP meeting in July. As of

many use cases exist for PIDs. But not all PID systems are equally
applicable to all use cases. So we are hoping to get some traction on
better understanding which PIDs are most appropriate for different use
